FY2010 Capital Investment Plan

East Japan Railway Company

March 30, 2010

This is to report that East Japan Railway Company (JR East) has adopted its FY2010 capital investment plan.


Although the business environment is difficult, JR East, following its "JR East 2020 Vision —idomu (challenge)—", is committed to continuing capital investment that will enhance safety, increase customer satisfaction and prepare the way for future growth.


Planned capital investment (non–consolidated) is ¥380 billion, an increase of ¥20 billion from the FY2009 plan.



Major capital investments

     
  We will continue to implement safety measures, including: initiating the use of platform doors at Ebisu and Meguro stations on the Yamanote Line, viaduct seismic reinforcement, preparing ATS–P and ATS–Ps (automatic train–stop systems), and measures against rail crossing accidents.
     
    We plan to invest about 170 billion yen in safety and stable transport measures.
     
  We will replace aging equipment to reduce impediments to transport caused by equipment malfunction.
     
  We will prepare for the opening of Shin–Aomori Station on the Tohoku Shinkansen in December. We will also introduce the high–speed E5 series Shinkansen train, which will operate at 300 km/h from the end of FY2010, and build the prototype for the new E6 series mass–production train for the Akita Shinkansen in preparation for the start of commercial operation of these trains at the end of FY2012.
     
    Speed pickup plan: End of FY2010: E5 series train 300 km/h
  End of FY2012: E5 series train 320 km/h; combined E5/E6 series train 300 km/h
  End of FY2013: Combined E5/E6 series train 320 km/h
     
  We will continue to prepare the Tohoku Jukan Line in preparation for opening in FY2013, and start work on building turnaround facilities at Shinagawa Station.
     
  Narita Express trains will all be replaced with new E259 series trains, and we will replace trains on the Keiyo and Joban lines with new E233 series trains.
     
  We will open new station buildings at Hachioji Station South Entrance and Akihabara Station Electric Town Entrance.
    In addition, we will proceed with station renovation and rebuilding of the station building at Chiba Station, and development of JR South Shinjuku Building (provisional name, scheduled to open in summer 2012), among others.
     
  We will increase the number of places where electronic money is used and further expand scenarios for using Suica.
